    First couple of black powder kills

    Had some fun with my muzzleloader black powder since I got her. Took a young sambar and fallow doe first couple of weeks with it and spent the last month chasing the big heavy 12pt red stag that gave me the slip last year. Finally caught up with him couple of weeks ago but already cast.

    The black powder still works well well done.

    Cam, pretty sure that's a Triumph by Thompson Center.

    It's a Thompson alright by the look of it. Have been considering one for a little while, but think I'm going to go down the 45-70 Trapdoor route due to the amount of moisture in the NZ bush, and the easy ability to unload it if needed.

    It's in the same line as triumph but a model up, this ones a bonecollector.
    @Uplandstalker it's an inline so moisture isn't near an issue like in caplock or flintlock. I shot the sambar in pouring rain. Unloading isn't that difficult but a bit of a pain, if I'm hunting for a few days I just remove the primer and leave the charge in there of a night time.

    If you don't like cleaning though definitely don't buy one. There's lots of it.

    Are you using powder or formed pellets?

    Powder can't get pellets here. I'm using a new one called Alliant black MZ that's only been out about three years but is very good and has minimal fouling compared to trip 7, BH209, white hots etc. one of the BP substitutes.
